The placenta is an amazing organ that was created along with your baby to nurture your baby throughout pregnancy. It contains many hormones, stem cells, iron, protein and is rich in vitamin B6. It was made specifically alongside your baby, and the benefits of this organ do not have to cease once your baby is born.
Many women believe* consuming their placenta has helped with: - Reducing the chance of developing Post-Natal Depression - Weight loss - Increasing energy levels - Replacing Iron - Reducing the length of postpartum bleeding - Overall feeling of well-being - Levelling out hormones avoiding mood swings - Supporting breast milk production This list goes on, and each woman will notice individual results. *This is anecdotal feedback received. No actual studies have ever been performed.
Placenta Encapsulation is a palatable, discreet way to consume your placenta so that you and your baby can continue to benefit from its goodness for weeks or even years after your baby's birth. Encapsulation involves slowly dehydrating your placenta until it is dry enough to be ground into a powder. It is then placed inside capsules to form a vitamin-like capsule. Each placenta is different so the quantity of capsules varies. I have found a rough estimate is between 150-220 capsules per placenta.
